Anne Lower has served as assistant to Blake Snyder (Save the Cat!). She created her web series “They Live Among Us,” about which pulp critic Will Varaho said “…makes pure pulp by throwing gothic horror, film noir, urban (LA) angst, theological theorizing, philosophical pandering and spiritual sex into a genre-bending blender.” Her film “Exit Plan” won the Grand Jury Award at the Los Angeles Neo Noir Film and Scriptwriting Festival.
Anne was named by Learnist “a filmmaker to watch in 2014,” and has led workshop for the Austin Film Festival, Women in Film Los Angeles, and the University Film and Video Association. She has adjudicated several contests, most recently the 2015 IAWTV and Rockie Awards; the Rockies were presented by BANFF as part of the Cannes Film Festival. Princess Scribe has been named a “Top Screenwriting Web Site” by SCRIPT magazine, and Screenwriting Spark.
In June of 2014, Anne broke her neck in a freak accident, which led to a diagnosis of Myeloma, an incurable, but treatable, form of bone marrow cancer. Now in recovery, she considers this life changing event her “Lucky Break”, and is working in a series of essays about her experiences to help survivors of catastrophic illnesses and injuries, as they learn to navigate their new lives. She has returned to her first love, screenwriting, and is planning to return to market soon.
Anne lives in Toluca Lake, with her husband Don, and her cats Bennie and June, and can be found searching for authentic broasted chicken in the mean streets of L.A.
